Fiddle player Ryan Young is part of a new wave of young musicians who are revitalizing the traditional scene in Scotland with fresh impulses
The fiddle player Ryan Young - visiting BARAKUBA with guitarist Chris Amer - belongs to a new wave of young musicians who are reviving the traditional scene in Scotland with fresh impulses. His playing is dominated by creative wit, infectious rhythmic energy and great dynamic depth and precision. With his unique interpretations of ancient and sometimes almost lost Scottish melodies, he effortlessly manages to take his listeners on an adventurous and emotional journey every time.
As unpretentious and unassuming as Ryan Young's stage presence may be, it cannot hide his phenomenal virtuosity: as soon as he passionately immerses himself in his playing, he becomes a force of nature, masterfully summoning up the emotionality of lyrical tunes as well as the pyrotechnics of fast pieces. His playing is very much influenced by the Irish tradition from County Clare - among his musical idols a number of great Irish fiddle players such as Bobby Casey, Paddy Canny, PJ and Martin Hayes as well as Tommy Potts - without completely abandoning his Scottish roots.
